Everything and more!
The hotel is absolutely under-rated, it was excellent. The room we had on the 3rd floor with balcony overlooked the ocean (classic room balcony). Room was clean and comfortable. We booked parking which was FREE at a secure lot about 350m away. However the hotel has good access by car so you can stop right in front to drop off or load luggage. From the hotel we could walk to the beach (take stairs on the far side of the bridge not the rocky ramp closest to the Hotel for easier walking) . The old town was a short stroll away from there, Panorama from the bridge and the balcony of the hotel restaurant are postcard level wonderful. Breakfast in the Hotel was great in grotto style function area with magnificent views. No extra charge for fried or scrambled eggs and coffee, plus the beautiful waitress "Mela" was so sweet and accommodating. Thanks to her and all the hotel staff for a wonderful stay. We would DEFINATELY recommend the hotel and will surely stay there again if the chance comes. Perfect location, facilities and warmth.

Top notch service on the water
This is a top notch hotel with great, personal service. Everyone was attentive, made phone calls for us to find a tailor, arrange restaurant reservations, etc. The hotel is right on the water, if you like hearing the gentle waves breaking against the grotta, if you like to take a coffee on your terrace, and if you don;t mind the less than five minute walk to the center of town, then you will love this place.
